I browsed this thread for common problem on 3rd gen. Mostly I found engine mount problem related to VCM, costly Depax, power steering pump, and few CEL issues. We have 02 EX and looking to upgrade to 07 & up. For me the simpler the Van the easier for me to troubleshoot since I DIY my cars. What 3rd gen don't have VCM? Is it true that all LX model have no VCM? So far VCM issue is the one that I'm nervous about.
